Wow, I am wiped out!! My first CHA (and hopefully not my last!) was sad, crazy, fun, overwhelming, hard work, exciting, and wonderful all rolled into one.
I am going to apologize upfront, that my CHA pictures will be in no particular order! I will tell you what day I took them, but I have them on two different computers at the moment!
The sad part is that I did not get to meet my online buddy Sarah de Guzman. She had a medical emergency and she and Gloria had to cancel their flight right before they were to leave. You can read about Sarah's scary emergency here. So, I was very worried about her and still am...missed you buddy...get better soon!
So after an 8.5 hour drive, I got to help set up the booth! Now, this is quite interesting as everyone is there, the air conditioner is BARELY on in the convention center during set up/take down. I do not...let me repeat...DO NOT like to be hot! (more on THAT later!). So, I helped Nikki and Dan set up the booth until about 8:30-9:00 Sunday night. Then I went back to the hotel room and worked on these!
I love the way they turned out, but they do take awhile!! These were all out of the "My Lil' Monster" collection. Then on Monday, I worked on these out of the "Gingerbread Land" collection.
On Monday, my roomie, Suzy West arrived. LOVE that lady, she is a HOOT!!!! Here is a picture of her when we went to downtown Chicago (which is a entire post in itself!).
Let's just say she made me SICK. She looked daisy fresh the entire time in 100+ degree temps...me not so much!
The best part of CHA, is meeting friends that you only know online, or that you haven't seen in awhile!!! I LOVE these girls, Jen Matott and Sarah Eclavea that are on Nikki Sivils DT with me! LOVE LOVE LOVE them!!!!
And then here are Sarah and I with Nikki, Jen had to catch a flight and we didn't get the picture taken before she had to leave...boo! and it's a little blurry, but we were getting ready for booth tear down.
I was so happy to get home! And this morning, I got up in time to catch this moment outside.....gosh, I missed their furry faces while I was gone. And then I have slept all day! LOL
That's it from me...I need to get another blog post done over on Nikki's blog!!!! Catch you next week....probably on Monday!
